WAR loses date information for enclosed contents

           Summary: WAR loses date information for enclosed contents
           Product: Tomcat 4
           Version: 4.0 Beta 1
          Platform: PC
        OS/Version: Windows XP
            Status: NEW
          Severity: Major
          Priority: Other
         Component: Connector:Webapp
        AssignedTo: tomcat-dev@jakarta.apache.org
        ReportedBy: acopernicus@yahoo.com


When the .war is decompressed, the file contents are all given the file 
creation date for the time of extraction.   The .war contains the correct 
dates.  I.e. if you open the .war with pkzip or WinZIP, you'll see that the 
correct creation dates are present.

Why do I need the actual creation dates?

I am using an autodeploy process (Java Web Start) for distributing my rich 
client.  Because the .war loses the dates, each new .war requires every file 
to download.  If the .war was properly decompressed, only the updated files 
(i.e. those with new build dates) would be downloaded because Java Web Start 
would have access to the correct creation dates.

thanks,
anthony
